For more than ten years the pan-European design collective Underware has been creating versatile fonts, surfing the waves, conducting type workshops, running the radio station Typeradio, throwing cannon balls, experimenting with blood, practicing kamikaze chess; but mostly, they gave flowers for their mothers and turned them into a cover girl. Which resulted in an everlasting smile on their faces.

The company was founded in 1999 by Akiem Helmling, Bas Jacobs and Sami Kortemäki. We are based in Den Haag, Helsinki and Amsterdam. If you want to be kept up-to-date about Underware's activities, please subscribe to the email newsletter.
